I’ve had some cardmaking momentum going the last few days so I decided I’d better ride with it before it runs out.  So I looked up some online challenges and rediscovered some older ones and found a few new ones.

I was pleased to see that CAS-ual Fridays was still very active.  It’s been over a year since the last time I participated in a CAS-ual Fridays challenge, but I decided to give it a go anyway since most of my cards tend to be either clean and simple or clean and layered.  They’re looking for thank you cards this week, and I’ve been wanting to make a few thank you cards for my Operation Write Home stash, so this helped me choose the theme for my card.

One of the new challenges just started last Wednesday.  It’s called Inkspirational, and each week they’ll present a different type of in(k)spiration to spark creativity.  The first week of each month, they’ll have a color challenge.  This time the colors are black, dark pink, and kiwi green.  So I chose Stampin’ Up’s Melon Mambo for the pink, and Lucky Limeade for the green.  I considered Kiwi Kiss but I liked the look of Lucky Limeade better with the pink.  I’m not sure why, but when I see bright colors like these put together, I tend to reach for this one particular stamp set I own that has kind of modern looking line drawings of flowers.  And I decided to use it for this challenge.  Here’s the result:
